Andy Layne Trail
On Saturday with the weather feeling a little warmer, we went on a GeoCache hunt in Catawba. Our starting point was the Andy Layne Trail. This was a fun hike although can get a bit treacherous if you make it out to Tinker Cliffs and Scorched Earth Gap, which I'd like to go back and get to those points before the weather turns hot. The trail intersects into the Appalachian Trail.
This picture is the beginning of the trail. You have to climb over the barbed wire by taking this little ladder. There are a few of them scattered along the trail, along with some neat bridges for crossing Catawba Creek.
